Some people collect salt and pepper shakers, some coffee mugs, for others it's spoons. I collect music boxes. In particular, I really enjoy music boxes from the San Fransisco Music Box Co. They make beautiful, well-made quality music boxes. I have quite a few, my favorites being the snowglobe type. I remember going to visit my Grandma and she had a few music boxes placed in her kitchen window. Oh how I loved to sit at her kitchen table, wind them up, and listen to their unique sounds. I would watch the intriquite moving parts and listen with such fascination, I was hooked on them. Since Scott and I have been married, he has tried to get me a music box every year for my birthday or Christmas. I just love the memories they bring back of my simple childhood, our family visits to Grass Valley, CA., and my Grandma and Grandpa Baker.
